    Washington, D.C. – Illegal immigration is not a new problem. It’s one of the primary issues that I came to Washington to solve.

    Washington, D.C. – A job is more than just making money and cashing a paycheck. It’s about finding a purpose and building a life. More importantly, it’s an integral part of the American dream: The idea that, with hard work, anyone can start from the ground up to create a better life for themselves, their children, and their grandchildren. America is the best in the world – bar none – at providing the opportunities that make that dream possible. Sadly, times have been hard. Many American workers ... Read more

Help with a Federal Agency

One of the most important things I do as a U.S. Representative is help constituents work through issues with federal agencies. Although I cannot override the decisions made by a federal agency, I can often intervene on a constituent’s behalf to get answers to questions, find solutions, or just cut through the red tape. Below you will find a list of agencies with which I can help you. However, regardless of which agency you need help navigating, you must complete a privacy authorization form to comply with the provisions of the Privacy Act. Please download this printable version of the casework authorization form and then fax or mail to the address listed under the agency from which you are seeking assistance.
